Yesterday, Adrock and friends, family, and officials dedicated a small playground abd park on the edge of Brooklyn Heights to honor the beloved Beastie Boys co-founder Adam Yauch, known around the world as MCA. The musician, filmmaker, activist, and rapper passed away on May 4th, 2012 after a three-year-long battle with cancer. (via)
